About Banyan Tree Kapalua
With an emphasis on supporting local farms and farmers, Chef Toland is bringing Banyan Tree back to its native Hawaiian roots, while dressing the menu with a French and Filipino flare inspired by her personal upbringing. A well-traveled and culturally versed individual, Chef Toland vows to "put her past on the plate," showcasing her extensive years of culinary expertise in various regions of the world. Born in Bordeaux, France and having lived her teenage years in Manila, Philippines, Chef Toland drew inspiration for several dishes on the new Banyan Tree menu from the flavors and ingredients found in these traditional cuisines. As a child of the world who has called countless cities home, her culinary prowess and techniques are truly one-of-a-kind, reflecting her inspiring journey that has now landed her on the island of Maui.
